Classic silent feature to be given live score as part of Op der Schmelz’s Touch Of Noir season.

Seen as the first “real” film by Alfred Hitchcock, The Lodger, one of the highlights of British silent film, has been lovingy restored a few years ago, now.

Using recurring motifs: the London fog, pretty blonde victims and the spectre of Jack The Ripper to create an unsettling feature – a style that Hitchcock would perfect in later ‘talkies’.

This screening at Op der Schmelz, as part of their Touch of Noir season, is special, not just because of the early promise on display, but also the live soundtrack played alongside the projection.

These cine concerts are a refershing way to enjoy the classic pieces, that in many ways are ahead of their time.

Pianist and composer Stephan Oliva was noticed as early as 90 in the field of jazz. Most of his recording projects are oriented jazz greats Bill Evans, Lennie Tristano, music or film. With “The Ghosts of Bernard Herrmann,” he gave a beautiful solo piano playback of several of the most famous film scores of the great composers.

The musician Jean-Marc Foltz Strasbourg emerged at the turn of the century as one of the most inspired clarinetists of the rich and innovative European jazz scene. Ramon Lopez is one of the most original percussionists in improvised music in Europe.
